Battle of Worcester 1651
Saturday 29th September 2018
Interesting battle, Worcester. The last cavalry charge in an English battle, Puritan spies lurking, the young Charles II fighting valiantly before fleeing to hide up his Oak with the Ironsides in hot pursuit. Why do the Scottish Horse refuse to attack? Why does Cromwell’s orderly think his boss is in league with the Devil? Do you?
In the morning we tour by car visiting the Viewpoint above the Bridge of Boats, Upton, Powick & Powick Bridge. After a lunch stop and display of C17 artefacts, we meet again outside the Commandery. The afternoon tour, on foot, visits sites around the City & Fort Royal. After the afternoon walk there is an optional extension to visit the Commandery, the Royalist HQ (reduced admission charge of £5per head).
Come to either or both tours and/or lunch and/or the optional extra visit!
